By the Tide

Hello,

I hope you are having a great start to your day! We are enjoying a nice relaxing day which is so nice!!

Last month at club, Sheila asked for some birthday cards that showed distressing. I thought the tearing effect and then sponging is a great way to showcase the distressing look. I love the By the Tide stamp set as it's great set for all the men in our lives!!

Badminton Champs MDS Page

Hello,

The other night, I had a chance to do some MDSing! I love when I can watch the hockey game and work on my albums in MDS.

Emily was on the badminton team this year with her BFF Sam and they had the chance to go to another high school for a tournament. With lots of hard work and  dedication they were Gold Champs and move onto the WOSSA championship. Unfortunately, they lost their first few games, but they had a great time and were happy with their results!!
